    I'm new and from SFL too, Ft Lauderdale. I didn't get any bees but I hear I should be able to pick up a swarm if I rub my new tbh with lemon grass oil.

    I got some lemongrass oil to experiment with too. let me know how it goes. I am planning to use it in a few nuc's in case my own hives get to capacity and want to swarm -- I would like to thing they would stay on with me.

    OK, the hive is built, the lemongrass oil is on a napkin inside a slightly opened ziploc, I put some honey with a bunch of grass so the don't get stuck, and I put the legs (concrete blocks) inside a plastic bucket filled with water to avoid ants. Now I will let you all know if I get some bees.

    Since this seems to be a So FL thing, I may as well chime in, too. I am new to this forum (been on a couple others for a little longer). Davie, FL here. Bees seem to be doing well down here! Looking forward to February when things will really be flowing! I'll be watching your handles for updates. Happy Bees everyone!
